This has been an incredible 24 hours.
To learn that I will be a father for the first time, sharing my first child with the most wonderful woman God could ever send my way is one of the best experiences of my life.
The outpouring of support has been tremendous. The comments to my blog, along with many private e-mails and phone calls have been very touching. I can’t begin to tell you how much they mean to me.
I have a million and one blogs I want to do, but I will hold off for a day or so as I bask in this happiness.
Those of you who are parents, and know all too well what I’m about to embark upon, please forgive my indulgence if I call upon you for help and advice.
Your kindness since this announcement will never be forgotten. Thank you, and please dear God, if it’s a boy, give me whatever it takes to play full court basketball and playground football again. If it’s a girl, may every boy that rings the doorbell be Eddie Haskell, and mean it.
Now, my lovely wife and mommy-to-be Jennifer has some thoughts:
The three of us want to thank you very, very much. Or maybe the FOUR of us. After all, twins run in both of our families!
To say we are excited is an understatement. I can’t begin to put in to words what this moment in time means to me. Bringing a life in to this world… a life created with a husband I love more than life itself, is a blessing like none other.
If one of the many baby websites I’ve visited already is correct, Baby Fischer will greet us around February 1st. My birthday is in February too, so I can’t think of a better birthday present!
I’m sure Kevin will share MANY stories as the months go on… How I’m eating us out of house and home, etc. So, thanks in advance for reading and sharing this magical time with us.
THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!
Kevin, Jennifer, and Baby (Babies???) Fischer!
